General McQuack is a male dognose.
Description[edit | edit source]
General McQuack was, by 1963, one of the top members of the Duckburg Space Exploration Academy. Alongside Doctor Drake and Professor Pintail, he helped pick out Donald Duck as the perfect man for the mission of investigating of Professor Hermit.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
General McQuack appears in the 1963 story Beyond The Moon.
Predating the creation of Launchpad McQuack by over two decades, General McQuack was not intended to be a relative of Scrooge's notorious crash-prone pilot, and it would be difficult for him to be, judging by their different species — although judging by the name, it is probable that Lockman wrote Beyond The Moon with a duck in mind, and Strobl was mistaken to draw the General as a dognose.
